gobus or city link express bus from dublin airport to galway

can anyone recommend either service? i'm trying to figure out the easiest, quickest, most cost effective way to get from the dublin airport to galway on a monday without a car, and then back again really early on a sunday morning - in time for a 9am international flight departure. thanks much!

Both services are excellent and cost roughly the same, although we normally travel with GoBus as they are a Galway company.

Gobus has an express / non stop service only, while Citylink has an express / nonstop and a commuter service. The commuter service stops along the route and can take an hour longer than the express services to make sure you dont pick one of these services.

No you don't want to be going to Dublin Airport from Galway through the night for an Early flight. You need to be in a Dublin Airport hotel with a shuttle bus the night before an early flight,

both excellent but we go with GoBus as their schedule fits really well with us for a Friday morning departure from Dublin to Galway and return.
